About the Author


SANAE ISHIDA writes, sews, draws, and takes photos almost every day. She lives with her husband and daughter in Seattle. She is the author of a book of sewing projects and personal essays, Sewing Happiness, as well as three children's books in the Little Kunoichi the Ninja Girl series. Both she and her daughter have too many handmade clothes.

Praise For…


"Ishida (Sewing Happiness), a children’s book and crafting guide author, provides a slew of child-friendly projects as adorable as they are functional. A chapter on sewing and embroidering basics should get readers up to speed before they begin the projects, which are divided among décor, toys, and 'wearables,' with the last section being the stand-out [...] These sweet DIY projects will appeal to parents who are also avid or aspiring sewers, not to mention to their kids."
—Publishers Weekly

"Ishida (Sewing Happiness) presents competent guidance for the dedicated crafter, showing passion in the construction of each project in this new collection. Here, the photography, soothingly beautiful, depicts the projects in a way that helps readers understand the appearance of each piece [...] A charming collection comprised of lovely fabric items ­crafters will enjoy gifting and creating."
—Library Journal


"Ishida returns with a cheery sewing book focused on creating toys, décor, and clothing for babies and small children. Fifteen projects, many of which have multiple variations, utilize minimalist design, animal themes, and muted colors that evoke an idyllic household filled with calm children engaging in enriching activities."
—Booklist
